Now, Onto the Oil Change
The first thing, before we drain the oil is a treatment of Engine Flush. Per instruction, add this to your vehicle AFTER the engine is up to operating temperature. Once added, let the engine idle for 10-15 minutes. Once time has passed, you can start the oil change. This will make the oil less viscous, so be careful when draining, as it will drain much faster than normally.
Before we lifted the truck up, we loosened the oil filter housing up top, since the filter is mounted in the engine bay. After getting the oil drained, we replaced the OEM, plastic drain plug with a UPR Billet Drain Plug with Magnetic Tip and Drain Valve for added ease on the next round of the oil change.
Next, we brought the truck back down, replaced all the O-Rings on the oil filter housing with the New ones supplied from Motorcraft, along with a fresh Motorcraft filter, screwed the assembly back on to the truck, and torqued it down to the stated spec, 18 ft. lbs. We also took off our UPR Catch Can to drain it and see what it had caught, and boy, we we're blown away with all the nastiness that caught.
To finish the job up, we added just short of 7 Qts of oil, as we added the full bottle of Liqui Moly Cera Tec, in addition, to help the motor run smoother, as well as give the internals a coating of ceramic to help minimize wear and tear and further the life of this engine.
The Cera Tec is a chemical/ceramic blend, in which the ceramic side of the formula fills in any small imperfections in the cylinder walls from factory, where as the other half, know as the friction modifier, helps reduce friction and over lower engine oil temperatures. The longterm result? A longer laster and better running engine. Looking to upgrade your ride?
